Fried Green Tomato Parmesan

Rather than the traditional eggplant Parmesan, I found that using fried green tomatoes gives a better flavor and texture!

Spicy Green Tomato Salsa

Rating: Unrated
A tasty twist to salsa; great served over cream cheese with tortilla chips or crackers! A great way to save those green tomatoes when there is an early frost. I created this recipe with the assistance of my daughter-in-law Carolyn and her niece Felicia. Thanks you two. Portion out remaining salsa into bags; freeze or refrigerate.

Fried Green Tomato Sandwich

My favorite way to eat fried green tomatoes! They're layered with red tomatoes and pepperjack cheese between 2 slices of bread, and then grilled to ooey-gooey, cheesy, crunchy perfection.

You can also fry up red tomatoes with this recipe but make sure they are not over ripe or they will be mushy. Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.

This delicious, tangy relish of green tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, and spices, is perfect with sandwiches, potatoes, cheese, and lots of other entrees. A jar of this makes a great gift, too!

Green Tomato Bread

I grew up thinking that this was zucchini bread...ha! Once I found out it was actually green tomatoes, I was a little weirded out, but still went back for more. An excellent way to use up those green tomatoes in a very tasty bread.

Air Fryer Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried green tomatoes are about as southern as you can get, comfort food at its best. An air fryer will allow you to put a healthier, but still totally delicious, version on the table.

Green Tomato Cake

This is a moist, spice-type cake...a good way to use some of those extra green tomatoes before frost hits. Sprinkle the finished cake with confectioners' sugar or frost with your favorite caramel or cream cheese frosting.

Karen's Fried Green Tomatoes

Rating: Unrated

This recipe comes from my mom and they are, hands down, the best fried green tomatoes. She makes these every summer with fresh tomatoes from her garden. My sister begs her to make them for her as soon as she sees tomatoes growing big and green on the vines. While most recipes call for breadcrumbs and oil, this one calls for flour and has you fry the tomatoes in butter, which helps give these an incredible flavor.
